What would you do?

Got some cash burning a hole in my pocket, I dont know if I want to do some performance mods, or get going on the suspension/tires & wheels.


Option #1
Raul sells a pkg. deal on a TW 6 position chip with gauges & pillar pod, and I was gonna grab a 5" straight pipe kit from Farmboys

or

Option #2
Pro Comp 8.5" suspension - 38 x 15.50 meats & 20" rims


They will both be done eventually, but I don't know what to do first. My truck is (almost) completly stock, is my DD, and my company vehicle. It will never go offroad, except for the occasional muddy jobsite, but it is my company truck, so its gotta look cool, and turn heads.
As far as the performance stuff, I dont really need it, I just want it!
Heres the catch - I can afford option #1 completly, option #2 on the other hand, I cant get all at once. I'll probably get the tires & wheels first, throw them in the garage until I can afford the suspension, & Truespeed.

What would you do?

Tymar intake, TW chip, ITP boost fooler, HP X-over line, single 6" miter stack with slip in muffler, JW valve body, wicked wheel, 6.5" Pro Comp lift, Pro Comp traction bars, Motometal wheels, 37 x 13.50 Dick Cepek Mud Country's, Autometer gauges in quad pillar pod, Garmin GPS

As much as I'd like the opportunity to sell you a set of wheels and tires option 1 is the way to go. You'll turn heads when you take people at the light.

OK thats 1 vote for each
I was leaning towards the looks, but I hate the idea of spending a ton of cash on either the lift, or tires & wheels, then waiting to get the rest of the chit to install it! I am a VERY impatiant person, and need instant gratification! I think that might kill me having to stare at a bad a$$ set of tires & wheels in the garage. On the other hand, if I got the lift 1st, and waited on the tires & wheels (I can see it now) - I would be looking like a retard rolling a lifted truck with stock size tires! The worst part is that I realize this, but I would have to do it anyway.

That is why I'm thinking performance parts now & wait till I get all the cash at once for the lift & tires.

What am I gonna do - Do I gotta start a poll?????

Well you could always try to find a good set of wheels and tires used and save a bunch there

I'm pretty picky when it comes to my vehicles, but I suppose I should look into that, but shipping would probably kill any kind of good deal that I can find.
